INJURED RECEIVERS

Oklahoma receiver Ryan Broyles and Stanford wideout Chris Owusu suffered serious injuries in separate games.

Broyles, an All-American, was lost for the season with a torn ligament in his left knee after going down in the third quarter of the seventh-ranked Sooners’ 41-25 win over Texas A&M. The senior had two catches for 87 yards and both helped set up touchdowns.

In Corvallis, Ore., Owusu was taken from Reser Stadium by ambulance after a helmet-to-helmet hit by Oregon State’s Jordan Poyer.

He was prone on the field for several minutes after the hit midway through the second quarter, but gave a thumbs-up after he was loaded on to a stretcher and placed into the ambulance.

Stanford reported that Owusu had a concussion but was conscious and had a full range of motion in his extremities. He was taken to the hospital for X-rays.
